Challenge-based Learning (CBL) is a pedagogical approach that actively involves students in a realistic, problematic and meaningful situation related to their environment, which requires defining a challenge and implementing a solution for it. The CBL methodology was applied by instructors with the support of students, part of the management programme from a Colombian university. The goal was to assess the validity of the methodology and examine solutions proposed by students to real-life problems in organizations. Findings allow for the conclusion that a link between CBL and entrepreneurial orientation exists. This link promotes the development of critical and constructive thinking whilst encouraging students to analyse, design, develop and execute solutions for real-life problems, similar to those they will encounter as graduate students in any organisation.
